  • They could be a disguised alien. They glow like that when reach 'very' in an emotion (here, would either be playful or focused)
  • Not even sims related, but i saw this photo in a thread about attendance at a valentino fashion show in rome and immediately thought of you, netz ...wonder why
  • Can confirm on the strays in selvadorada. They even have a unique hidden trait to them. Something along the lines of 'native_stray' if i recall Looks like some checking with showsiminfo may be needed for the moonwood strays, see if they get similar
  • Alas, no, the two default packs are the only options Clubs are the way to go with your own packs, but they won't be quite the same as moonwood collective or wildfangs, which is a bit of a shame
  • It usually takes a day or three for the trailer sims to show up on the official maxis account, if they show at all Often players will make and upload their versions in the meantime (I personally am after the white furred guitarist from the trailer)
  • Just chiming in with a ridiculous one that sprang to mind... university werewolf with the 'party animal' aspiration, truly trying to live up to that title
  • And now to chime in with a few of my own... got too many to list anything in any real detail (i tend to have 30-50 of each occult in my game) But a few are as follows: The afore-mentioned hot-headed art critic that'll scare even diego lobo The afore-mentioned social media star (who will likely be good friends with my…
  • Seems there's one sim native to the new world that's not a werewolf, so she wouldn't be the only one, but still odd one out As for careers and such, photographer really stands out to me out of your options. A few things i read opened up potential ideas, too. Things like this may give you an outsde the box type of idea for…
  • Not exactly sure how this person got the shots, but looks like there's 110 cas and 78 bb items included (plus all the world/debug items i can't wait to get my grubby paws on) https://mobile.twitter.com/whimsyalien/status/1532412870411051008
  • Per usual, you're here to save the day for those of us that are stylistically or creatively challenged, such as myself Haven't popped in in a while, but knew i could trust you to showcase all these things properly. (Also, gotta laugh at how you introduced someone new to the gladiator sandals club)
  • Really curious which scenario(s) that hidden trait is for, now Also, as a pointless aside, it makes me laugh a lot because of the similarities to 'whee_inthemood', the ig handle for a kpop girl
  • I think it was an old situation that somehow changed with an update sometime in the past few years... and most of us that did have a social grim actually had it start from a death, then a sim talking to grim to get him flagfed as a friendly sim, so he just started going aeound doing regular stuff for a while
  • I'm definitely hoping that werewolves will be at least as customizable as mermaids, but would prefer something more versatile so we could possibly make things like kitsune/kumiho. If nothing else, a few different fur patterns to make different tribes/clans/whatnot. The painting from cats and dogs would be even more amazing…
  • Grim used to be a very popular sim in my game, even with relatively few deaths many people knew him. He was quite good friends with the sim that got me the black widow achievent as well as a handful of others, wound up getting invited to parties all the time and more One of my favorites was a promotion party at the…
  • The 200 sim limit as the default is for lower end systems. You can easily have a bunch more, depending on what you're running Like someone above, i've got 600+ sims in my game and constantly want to add more (and do manually cull). The last update for the culling thread says the game starts culling extra sims at around 800…
  • This command should do it... there are two different versions you can use: bucks.unlock_perk ResistanceSolis_Level3 true 40961 (sim id number) If you just stop at the 'true', it should take effect but not list properly (which shouldn't matter for a hybrid like you have). Adding the 40961 and the id number of your sim has…
  • Plantsims are a finicky lot, that's for sure... i've got a plantsim household in my game (with a lovely fernhound pet from gw2 i found on the gallery) The 5 day duration on the moodlet is brutal, but thankfully doesn't seem to go down if you're playing other households (for rotational players). That was a nice discovery…
  • Just coming to chime in with a few things a little late: Sims 4 does indeed have gender preferences though you normally can't see them. A mod like showsiminfo or (i presume) mccc can show it, along with hidden traits and such. The preferences are shown as %/% male/female from 0 to 100 and a sim can have 100 in both.…
  • Similar to kerrigan, my magnolia promenade became alien/sixam themed (i'd love something that made it, esp the map, actually so) but it was a process that sort of accidentally happened My 'main' household that tests pretty much every pack when i get it is a female alien (scientist), her human husband (astronaut) and 3 of…
  • Wow, stormkeep started this off strong. I've got a ton of clubs (and about as many sims) but think even my list pales in comparison to his. Didn't even know about the 200ish limit Like him, i have a bunch of townie-specific ones made to have various lots feel more lived in, such as two competing sets of football hooligans…
  • I wound up being part of the diego + izzy crew almost accidentally in my main save... i played him a bit and worked somewhat on an evolving story for him, basically explaining the fact that he was such a womanizer who blew through relationships with a quickness (that always ended in shouting matches mere days later) with…
  • oh yeah, show sim info is great. and my most-used mod. for some reason i thought you were a console player, so was avoiding mentioning mods. heartily second its recommendation, though also, speaking of mods and the club system, zerbu's more club icons mod is another super handy thing, esp if you're addicted to making clubs…
  • if you have get together you could have your sim create a club whose only requirement is having the snob trait, that'll let you see who all has the trait when you go to add members to it. (i've got a similar club, run by diego lobo, where they just drink nectar, critique art and basically badmouth the fashion of everyone…
  • yup, that's the one. you'll likely have to mark the sim as unplayed again so it'll stick around, but it's been a while since i played with hidden traits like that (and even then, it was mostly with the sages for spellcasters)
  • can you use cheats? i don't know what all is available on ps4 version. but if you can use cheats, specifically the trait-adjusting ones, you can give the landlord hidden trait to a sim you want to be the landlord and either delete or play the current landlord to get that trait removed from them
  • there is indeed a limit on the number of dishes a restaurant can serve, it's 30 in each category. i've got a lot of different restaurants in my game and some of their themes hit that cap pretty easily, so gotta be careful deciding what i want to use in the definitely suggest creating your own types of restaurants to help…
  • there are actually hidden traits that determine if batuu will treat a sim as an alien of any of the speces there (just know, if you give a sim any of those alien traits, they won't be able to do any of the first order side of the story. though a 'get to work' alien can do that just fine) here's the specific traits needed…
  • or @elliandre beat me to that search. she is indeed part of the second (or third) set of new maxis-created characters that you can either grab full-formed from their gallery id or get as a random template whenever you go to create a new sim
  • i believe she's sort of like babs l'amour and the other original premades that got used as templates, so that any time you go to create a brand new sim, she has a decent chance to pop up as the default look. they had done one or two more rounds adding sims like that, and also uploaded a few of them as townies on the…
  • just a bit of a tangent, but @crocobaura and @BoergeAarg61 especially, i actually tend to cancel the 'clean up' sims do with dirty dishes either if they have a home recycler or live on a haunted lot. those dishes can be recycled and are going to waste, otherwise. also, spectres tend to love them, even if they're just empty…
